Allergy Annie was a character developed by Honeywell HVAC company to promote their air cleaning products. The doll and coloring book were offered for free when readers agreed to have a representative demonstrate "(in your home) the multiple benefits of this Honeywell Electronic Air Cleaner."
Red-eyed Annie in our button should not be confused with the new Annie. In May of 2012 "Allergy Annie" was trademarked by a company selling allergy labeling products. Wonder if they know about the "real" Allergy Annie?
